My self-summary
Londoner, brought up in a pub, currently studying at the University of Nottingham. Keen on escaping the monotony of my dating life thus far and seeing the rest of the world.
What I’m doing with my life
Supposedly an engineering degree but mainly wasting time with tv shows, YouTube and drinking to excess. I also exercise quite a lot to mitigate the damage caused by the afore mentioned and also because I actually enjoy it.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at basketball, rock climbing, yoga, gymnastics and parkour and have a green belt in capoeira although I'm much better at drinking and playing Super Smash bros Melee.
The first things people usually notice about me
The finger up my nose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The God Delusion, The Life of Pi, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night time, Watchmen, Anything Dr. Seuss, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and a few Poker books. Not as interested in fiction since the pages stopped popping up to be honest.

Film: I'm very familiar with the IMDB top 250 and I don't think there's really a film on there (that I've seen) that I haven't appreciated in some way or another but here's a spread of films that came to mind first although it's probably missing a few important ones I can't currently be bothered to remember- Anything Scorsese, Tarantino, Kevin Smith or Marvel related + Old Boy, There Will Be Blood, A Scanner Darkly, Fight Club, Cypher, Donnie Darko, LOTR, The Batman trilogy, American Beauty, Scarface, V for Vendetta, Whiplash, Birdman, This is England, Inception, The Shawshank Redemption, Blade Runner, Juno, Se7en, Lucky Number Sleven, Ip Man 1 & 2, Fearless, Hero, Memento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Dude Where's my Car?, Requiem for a dream, Watchmen, Akira, A Beautiful Mind, Drive, Disturbia, K-Pax, Mr. Nobody, The Fighter, The Garden State, The Master, Warrior, The Usual Suspects, The Place Beyond the Pines.

TV: Archer, Rick and Morty, Black Mirror, Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, This is England, True Detective, Luther, Mad Men, Trailer Park Boys, Sherlock, Community, Band of Brothers, South Park, Parks and Recreation, New Girl, Drawn Together, Pointless, Daredevil, The Mighty Boosh, American Horror Story, Californication, Breaking Bad, Dexter and a lot of anime. Plus If it's on Netflix I'll probably get round to it.

Music: Inherited 360 vinyls that I'm yet to listen to so I imagine there'll be more to add to this list but here we go- Bonobo, Billy Woods, Flying Lotus, DOOM, Homeboy Sandman, Nirvana, Grimes, Death Grips, RHCP, Shlomo, Lauren Hill, James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Mala, Coki, Murlo, CAS, Bob Marley, Gorillaz, Digital Mystikz, JME, Preditah, Vince Staples, The Gaslamp Killer, Madlib, A$AP Rocky, Nosaj Thing, OutKast, Shabazz Palaces, UB40, Boylan, Four Tet, Clams Casino, Jon Hopkins, Kromestar, Pangaea, Om Unit, The Offspring, Wu-Tang Clan, The Temper Trap, Pixies, Rustie, Violent Femmes, Notorious BIG, Pusha T, Lupe Fiasco, Nas, Souls of Mischief, Portishead, Tokimonsta, BADBADNOTGOOD, Dizzee Rascal and Kanye West (in moderation) will suffice as a reasonable insight to what I'm currently into but will give virtually anything a listen excluding the likes of Bieber et al.

Food: As much and as often as possible. Would like to turn veggie at some point.

Sidenote: I'd like to expand my horizons in all of these areas so if you've got any recommendations I'd be glad to hear from you.
The six things I could never do without
Realised by browsing through several profiles that giving the literal things you couldn't live without here doesn't come across as smart and as funny as I first thought. Here are 6 things I'd rather not go without, that are somewhat unique to me:

A basketball

A series on the go

A large volume of water situated beside my bed when I'm hungover

My watch

Gym membership

A comb
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work (ideally this will move down the pecking order when I graduate this summer), fitness, money, religion, morality, fashion, festival season, moving to California/Tokyo/Australia and how exactly that will work out, if I should sell my soul to a high paying corporation or become a raging hippie and teach rock climbing or something else outdoorsy, how much people who don't watch anime are missing out, if there's any other image that means enough to me to get it tattooed on my body, my Nintendo GameCube, women and how much beard is enough beard.
On a typical Friday night I am
Inebriated.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My genuine middle name is Bam-Bam.
You should message me if
You can hold a conversation and spell to a reasonable degree.
Bonus points for cynicism, logic, grammatical proficiency and a dark/dry sense of humour.
